Poco, Live At Columbia Studios Hollywood 9/30/71

Just released in The States (on Collector’s Choice label), a live CD from the band PocoLive At Columbia Studios Hollywood 9/30/71.

Poco first made their reputation as a live act—it’s no accident that their 1971 live album, Deliverin’, was the band’s biggest seller until 1978’s ‘Legend’.

The discovery of this crystal-clear recording from 1971, then, is cause for rejoicing for Poco fans; it was actually recorded a year later than ‘Deliverin” was, with the high-flying line-up of Richie Furay,Timothy B. Schmit, George Grantham, Rusty Young and (making his first live appearance with the band) Paul Cotton, and boasts a set list that departs significantly from the one on the previous live album.

Live At Columbia Studios Hollywood 9/30/71 includes ‘Introduction—I Guess You Made It; A Man Like Me; Ol’ Forgiver; Hear That Music; Hurry Up; You Are the One; Bad Weather; Medley: Hard Luck/Child’s Claim to Fame/Pickin’ up the Pieces; Hoedown; What a Day; Railroad Days; What If I Should Say I Love You; Just for You and Me’, and C’Mon’. One hour of great country rock… 16 tunes!
